Things to do, Jerusalem strolls
It can be rough on Shabbat for the Jerusalem tourist. The city grinds to a halt to observe the day of rest, leaving the streets mostly empty and all save a few restaurants and bars shuttered. Family activities are especially limited, and visitors with children may not relish the idea of staying cooped up inside all day.
Fortunately, the Municipality offers at least one option: Shabbat walking tours of the city's major sights, conducted by trained guides, absolutely free of charge.
The full schedule of this year's tours can be found on the Municipality's website. Tours depart from 32 Jaffa, in front of the Russian Compound and across from the Finegold Court, are Shabbat-observant, and take a maximum of three hours.
